Our Story

My Life Story

I was born in the suburbs of California in 1981. I grew up on a steady diet of 80s and 90s pop culture. Saturday morning cartoons, Nintendo, Jolt Cola, and a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. I loved collecting and displaying the boxes for my action figures and the cool old mid-century stuff from my grandparent's house.

Artistic Background

Like most kids, I loved drawing from a young age. I still have my copy of How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way — which I carried around like a holy book throughout grade school.

When I was 14, I was accepted into the Vancouver School of Arts and Academics. I studied visual arts, guitar and composition, and film.

In my 20s I tried like hell to find a way to make a living doing what I love including music, design, and software.

None of these pursuits got me where I wanted to go and by the end of my twenties I was in $20,000+ worth of debt and had picked up a habit of drinking to much while I was in the band. Not good.

A New Life

When I found out my first child was on the way the countdown timer started. I wanted to find a way to support my family, work for myself, and show my daughter it was possible to make a living doing something you love.

I stopped drinking, started waking up at 5:00 a.m. and started working on texture packs and other resources to capture the look of retro packaging, comics, and art from my childhood.

Under the name RetroSupply, I experimented with making digital products. After a few months I started getting some steady sales and leveraged marketing skills I had learned over the years to help build the business.

Today

RetroSupply.co has become one of the most popular places online to buy digital brushes, textures, fonts, courses, and other tools to help illustrators and designers. We've released over 100 products, sold well over 100,000 products, and have three full-time employees and dozens of contractors.

While a lot of companies that sell digital products make the product, sell it, and pocket all the profits RetroSupply has consistently invested in hiring talented creatives to build, update, and provide educational content and support.

The result are products that push the limits of what digital tools can do. Customers regularly tell us how amazed they are at the ingenuinity and thoughtfulness of the products.
